Most people like to gaze out over the river the runs through Phnom Penh. But if you look at the opposite bank you’ll see one of the most up-and-coming districts in the city. Chroy Changvar district encompasses the peninsula formed by the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers, as well as Koh Dach, or Silk Island. National Highway 6A runs through Chroy Changvar. It provides a direct route to the important provinces of Siem Reap, Kampong Thom, and Kampong Cham.

Chroy Changvar undoubtedly has what it takes to become an economic powerhouse. Packed with potential, Chroy Changvar is headed and pushing itself in the right direction. And with it hosting Southeast Asia’s biggest sporting event, it is just a matter of time that Chroy Changvar will join the list of Phnom Penh’s most progressive districts.

Things To Do in Chroy Changvar

Chroy Changvar has just a few markets, but many think more will be added as international investment there grows. Among the most prominent of them are Vathanak Super Market, JR Mart, Point One Commercial Center, and Phsar Preak Leap. These have a good selection of wet and dry goods.

Chroy Changvar was never really known for its food. But that has changed recently. There are tons of restaurants right along the riverside near Sokha Hotel. Yet most notably is Food Palace, the biggest street food centre in Cambodia. It’s inside the Chroy Changvar Satellite City and hosts over 200 food stalls. They serve up Khmer, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese and Western food.

The nightlife in Chroy Changvar is less lively than places closer to the centre. The most famous names in the district’s nightlife scene include Dream World KTV, Bokor Lounge & Bar, and Spean Meas Karaoke. These mostly cater to the local population.

Explore the Area

Part of Phnom Penh, Chroy Changvar is the name of both the district and the peninsula it encompasses. Chroy Changvar is across the river from central Phnom Penh. It is connected to the centre of the city by a pair of bridges. The Cambodia-China Friendship Bridge and Cambodia-Japan Friendship Bridge were also instrumental in the neighbourhood’s rise. The latter was originally built back in the 1960s, but saw major renovations in the first half of 2019. There’s also a bridge to the peninsula farther north in the Prek Pnov area of the capital.
